Playdead’s LIMBO Reviews

We’ve played limbo hundreds of times on several platforms and we still enjoy it very much. We would happily play it again if we happen to see it playable on another platform. Thank you devs.

We literally love this game. Very well designed, beautiful scene and even a seemingly main plot. The important thing is they are all connected and melted into one. The puzzles are difficult but still solvable. We didnt check any online walkthroughs and only discussed with our girlfriend when we could not work it out (shes a genius). So we dont agree with those who rated low just because theres no hints. We’ve played many other puzzle games, like medulla, father and son, lucid dreams, we would say this one is by far our favorite, even though its lower rated than those mentioned above. We guess our only worry is that for some levels you need to move really fast to pass and our fingers sweat so.

We found myself frustrated with executing the proper movements and timings rather than actual enjoyment of figuring out a puzzle. Executing the needed movements (e.g., run and jump) was very difficult at times. Maybe some people might like that. Just be aware.

We started to play limbo right after we finished inside because we were absolutely amazed with the graphics and play style but we highly recommend that if you want to play inside play it after you play limbo. We hate to say how disappointed we are with the bugs with jumping. We guess we just feel a bit spoiled after playing inside first. Dont make that same mistake.

This was fun back when it was actually a game with spiders and evil children and not hours upon hours of moving boxes and falling of cliffs!

Lack of controller support ruins a great game.

This game is by far one of the best we’ve played its immersive and beautiful, striking to your visual and auditory senses. Its challenging yet not impossible, making you think and explore. We loved it all the way to the fantastic ending, yet Im sad its over. Brutal and gory at times, but forgiving in the end, we hope theres more to come with these types of games.

We are not a gamer person but we couldn’t stop play this game it takes 2 days to finish it very very very nice game with creative puzzles, contolrs are not very bad and we get use to them…

Just wow,this is the best game we have ever played our number 1 favorite we love it and recommend it to anyone who likes puzzle adventure games just wow love it.

The title says it all. Need a sequel, maybe a trilogy.

When we first saw this game, we thought it was just gonna be another boring app since that’s how it seems for a lot of apps lately, but this game is nothing like we thought it would be. It has an amazing thought of it and it’s levels are very well made. It almost seems as if this was a game on/made for the computer. We’ve made it about more than half way through the campaign and we still love it. It was honestly the best dollar we’ve spent on an app in a long time. It doesn’t get boring easily and it makes you want to just keep playing it until you pass that one level that you’re trying to finish. We recommend it to anyone who loves an interesting, puzzling game.

This is one of the most stunning games we’ve seen in a long time. Limbo is amazing. It deserves more then five stars.

Good_graphics=True Awesome_gameplay=True Please release inside on iOS. We’ll buy it so will many others, we mean have you looked through the requests for "limbo 2"? It would sell like hot cakes.

When we got limbo it was a weird game but and we were right. Also it just leaves us on cliff hangers and it’s an amazing game.

We love this game, but we are soooooooo stuck. We’re ready to throw our phone. We’ve looked up walkthroughs and it just seems we’re not quick enough to do what needs to be done to get further. We are sooooo frustrated. But we love this game, and hate it soooooo much haha.

This is a solid game with interesting graphics and interesting puzzles that get harder as you go along. It is dark, literally and figuratively. It is only in black and white, and the whole game is kinda creepy and be prepared for the often deaths that can look gruesome. Many reviews have referred to the controls: we agree it would be better with physical buttons, but we really had no complaints with the gameplay. You just have to be persistent in continuing to move your finger the right way, sometimes without a break, which was a little harder. But we thoroughly enjoyed the game, even when it was hard, and was hoping that there was another one to play.

This is most addicting game ever. You are running around trying to keep your little guy alive and the only way to get through the levels is to kill him multiple times. Sometimes it even makes you laugh hysterically sometimes you get so angry that you want to throw your phone at the wall. The only thing that we can say bad about it is that the controllers are kind of hard to get used to considering you’re using your thumbs the whole time. But really how long is there any other way to make this game function on a we phone. This game is worth every cent pick it up today, we mean it! You will not regret it. Really hope they come out with the second one or other games in general because we would purchase some immediately.

This game in fun. It is also puzzling, and you can play it for ours.

We only wish there were more games like this. Granted the game does get creepy bordering on downright disturbing at moments but the story is intriguing and and we really like games with an end goal, instead of all the endless pointless repetitive nonsense people call games these days.

It’s a great game to be honest nothing more to say.

The story behind this game is kind of confusing but it is very emotional! Limbo is our favorite IOS game!

One of the best games we’ve ever played. Everyone should try it.

It Is definitely worth your money. We highly recommend this game. You can spend hours on it. Epic game.

Really good we love that it is dark and creepy and the controls they are so unique!!!!!!

We miss playing this game! We completed the game once it became avail on Xbox one, playing it on the big screen vs iPhone, no comparison! If anyone reads this and is wondering if it’s worth it? YES!!! Big props to the creators!!

Limbo is a great platformer and puzzle game, with all the crappy Free To Pay games that spill out on the AppStore every Thursday it needs more praise them it gets. We’ve played this game since it came out on the 360 in 2010 and we’ve gotten so good at it that we’ve taken to speedrunning. There a lot of replay value here, and if this game game captures your interest then it’ll keep you busy for a long time. We’ve played this game across several Apple devices, and there isn’t that much of a difference as far as we can tell. The iPad 2 lags when entering areas with light shafts and a lot of objects with Depth Of Field, if you don’t notice FPS (Frames Per Second) drops then your good.

Good game but it makes no sense at the end. So if you like games that make no sense at the end this is for you. Otherwise AWESOME GAME!!!!!

We love this game so much and you guys have put a lot of effort into it. Although, we always have to watch a walk through for pretty much every step and that’s fine. Because this game was so terrific and awesome you should make a limbo 2!! Please we would love that we gave this app a 5 star rating because 4 and a half isn’t enough and you guys deserve more With yours truly Love Maddie.

Spooky and eerie, like a dream after you’ve taken melatonin. Cops on iPhone seem tricky sometimes, but really it is because you’re not sweeping correctly because you’re so tense. They work, and you can definitely finish the game. Amazing game. We also have it on XBox but never played it, will try now.

Limbo is the kind of game that you wish would have a sequel this game really was incredible. We like platform games and spooky games so this really meant something to me.

Can someone help us we have no idea how to use the controls we only know how to run back n forth.

We loved the game and the mechanics are amazing, but can you make a sequel for this game, we want to know what happens after his sister got up from digging.

We never write reviews on apps, but wow. This game is absolutely incredible. If you’re looking for a great game with an interesting story, play LIMBO. It’s definitely worth the $5.

The creators of Inside’s original masterpiece.

This game is absolutely Fantastic. The puzzles in the game are also well done and challenging and very fun. The atmosphere is very dark and gritty but also very nice and cool. We 100% recommend this game.

We don’t see how anyone wouldn’t give it five stars. One of the best games in the AppStore. It’s just greatness.

Haven’t played such a good game in a long time. Usually with other games you start to notice a pattern and this is when it begins to be boring. Here enigmas, levels, even the world itself is ever changing. Amazed by how they created such a clean graphics with only blacks and whites. Atmosphere is awesome. Can’t wait for the next one. Keep up the good work.

We love this game so much and the story was amazing u know it’s a good game when the making knows what u are going to do so it makes it a little more difficult but we like a challenge we really hope u guys add more levels because we would really like to play more!!

This is a beautiful game. Animation and graphics really complement the whole mood of the game. Controls, which is the basic swipe up for jump and swipe left to run or walk, can be a bit difficult for those trying to be extra careful on marginal grounds. But this is a challenging game! Both controls and strategy wise. There is no menu, only an arrow to direct us to the stage we must complete. So so ascetically pleasing, we must say. Thank you for being $1.

Amazing game, but the controls are bad.

Epic game! Update soon though.

Buy it for 99 cents. Or $1.99. Or $4.99. It’s worth whatever you pay. But it does go on sale.

This game is one of the best if not the best that we have ever played!! The graphics are amazing and beautiful. The game makes you think and also have fun at the same time. If you are trying to decide whether or not to get this game we highly suggest you do get it.

Do get this the controls are bad Thoe we recommend u play a another kind of this like olimar ore som to get the feal of it so it’s gr8 m8s IGN:10/10.
